President Eisenhower, asked about his favorite sports:
"There are three that I like all for the same reason—golf, fishing and
shooting—because they take you into the fields.... They induce you to take at
any one time two or three hours, where you are thinking of the bird or that
ball or the wily trout. Now, to my mind, it is a very healthful, beneficial
kind of thing, and I do it whenever I get a chance, as you well know."
Sveinn Arsaelsson of Iceland, on the weather at St.
Andrews during the World Amateur Golf Championship: "It's much colder in
Scotland than it is in Iceland." CHARLEY COE OF OKLAHOMA: "The
quartering wind behind me reminded me of the Dust Bowl back home." RAYMOND
OPPENHEIMER, Great Britain's chief team selector, speaking with proud
satisfaction: "The old lady—the Old Course—is showing her teeth."
